Brief Exercise 6-2  (30 minutes) 1. The CVP graph can be plotted using the three steps outlined in the  text. The graph appears on the next page. Step 1. Draw a line parallel to the volume axis to represent the  total fixed expense. For this company, the total fixed expense is  $12,000. Step 2. Choose some volume of sales and plot the point  representing total expenses (fixed and variable) at the activity level  you have selected. We’ll use the sales level of 2,000 units. Fixed expense. ........................................................ $12,000 Variable expense (2,000 units × $24 per unit). ........   48,000     Total expense. ......................................................... $60,000 Step 3. Choose some volume of sales and plot the point  representing total sales dollars at the activity level you have  selected. We’ll use the sales level of 2,000 units again. Total sales revenue (2,000 units × $36 per unit). .... $72,000 2. The break-even point is the point where the total sales revenue  and the total expense lines intersect. This occurs at sales of 1,000  units. This can be verified by solving for the break-even point in
